Join us for Climate Week NYC 2019, a week-long event by Climate Group in coordination with the United Nations and the City of New York, showcasing climate action and inspiring new initiatives across a variety of sectors and topics: from buildings and infrastructure to land management, climate finance to environmental justice.
This year’s Climate Week is the largest ever, far exceeding last year’s 150 events. Building Energy Exchange is thrilled to support this year’s Climate Week by doing what we do best — accelerating the transition to healthy, comfortable, and energy efficient buildings.
On September 23, BE-Ex welcomes the Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) and the NYC Mayor’s Office of Sustainability for an event exploring how landlord-tenant collaboration can improve building performance. This event, part of the Clean Transport, Buildings and Infrastructure and State, City and Local Action Climate Week NYC series, will detail both examples of land-lord tenant collaboration and how performance policies, like NYC’s Climate Mobilization Act, influence behavior by these actors in practice.
Hear from Richard Yancey, Executive Director at BE-Ex, on the morning of September 25 at Building Futures, a Climate Group event exploring how new smart technologies are disrupting the market, providing innovative climate solutions, and reshaping the buildings we live in. This event is part of the Climate Week Hub, a two-day forum within Climate Week that offers a forward-thinking space for political and business leaders engaged in climate action.
The evening of September 25, join us at the Exchange for a panel discussion in partnership with International Living Future Institute and North American Passive House Network on net-zero buildings — high-efficiency projects defined by their neutral or positive impact on our climate. ILFI, alongside Salesforce, will present case studies on their collaborative work on net-zero buildings, while ZH Architects will demonstrate the role of Passive House as powerful demand reduction strategy for targeting net zero while improving health outcomes and occupant comfort.
On the morning of September 27, we’ll be hosting a panel in partnership with the Japan Climate Initiative on international pathways to decarbonization. The program will showcase the Tokyo Cap & Trade Program, Yokohama’s Smart City Project, and NYC’s Climate Mobilization Act – three leading climate action plans that target building emissions. Featuring guest speakers from Tokyo’s Renewable Energy Institute, Tokyo’s Municipal Emission Cap and Trade program, and Yokohama Climate Change Policy Headquarters, this event offers a rare opportunity to gain insight into leading international climate action programs from the folks that developed them.
Climate Week NYC takes place September 23 to 29.
